When I read this comic, the first thing I thought of IMMEDIATELY was Christine O'Donnell. If you don't recall, during the 2010 Senate campaign, O'Donnell was offering economic advice. This from someone who hasn't paid taxes since 2005, who stopped paying her mortgage in 2007, who misused campaign funds in two separate elections in order to pay her rent. (source) Really? Fortunately, the good people of Delaware had the sense not to elect her. Hopefully, she'll never end up in office.
The 2010 midterm elections were just the beginning — the first rumblings of a revolution that has not fully erupted. I plan on making my book one of the revolution's catalysts.
Christine O'Donnell, former US Senate candidate (Tea Party) and public nuisance (source)
- You think she uses the same ghost-writer as Sarah Palin?
- You think she'll actually ever read the book? Do you think she can even read?
Okay. That was three questions. Sue me.
If the 2010 midterm election marks a revolution is immaterial - Christine O'Donnell isn't going to be a catalyst of anything. If this is the caliber of candidate that the Tea Party can come up with, then I rest easily knowing that this will be a blip in history, a curiosity in Wikipedia, not a future player in American politics.
